How to Make the Most of Your Space in a Small Apartment

Stylized Twin Falls Studio Apartment with Storage SpaceIf you live in a small Twin Falls apartment, it’s significant to make the most of every square inch. Keeping your space neat and organized can be a real challenge if there’s not a lot of storage to work with. This applies especially if you share your small apartment with others. Thank goodness you can do various helpful tricks to keep your personal belongings from overwhelming you and your home. Despite your decorating style, these organizational strategies can encourage you to keep everything in your home in its proper place.

Hidden Storage

When space is limited, you must first consider making your furniture do double duty. To add storage to a living room, simply put a storage ottoman or side table. These pieces can help you keep throws, media cases, and other items organized and out of sight with large interior compartments.

Use the Space Under Furniture

To free up space in your closets and bookshelves, think about storing off-season clothing or rarely used items under beds or other furniture. You can order storage containers that are designed to fit under a bed. But if your bed is too low to the ground, consider attaching risers to lift it a few inches. This gives you much more space to store items that you don’t need access to every day.

Shrink & Save Bulky Items

To save space when storing your sweater collection, blankets, or spare pillows, start using vacuum bags. These bags form a tight seal around your bulky items, shrinking them down to a much lower dimension. They even seal out dust, making this one an ideal way to store seasonal items. By keeping large and bulky items this way, you can easily store double the number of personal items in the same amount of space.

Hang It Up

Another option to reap the benefits of your small apartment is to use walls to their full potential. There are several small apartments without a hall closet, making it challenging to recognize what to do with coats, hats, and umbrellas. Try adding hooks or open shelves behind the door or on an adjacent wall to give you additional places to keep your things organized. You can follow this same principle for larger items, including bicycles. The addition of sturdy hooks or pegs to a wall can give you a convenient place to hang a bike or other large things, freeing up floor space and keeping your belongings out from underfoot.

Utilize Nooks & Crannies

Sometimes, in order to see the full capacity of your small apartment space, consider putting every nook and cranny to work. With some essential materials, you can make the insides of cabinet doors, the back of bathroom doors, crawl spaces, attic spaces, and other places into storage areas for your belongings. Furthermore, most closets and cabinets have odd corners or hidden places that could be ideal for storing items you don’t use daily.

Simply stacking boxes behind your hung clothing can also provide a great deal of extra storage. In conclusion, maximize your vertical storage space by incorporating shelves to unused spots in your kitchen, entryway, bedroom, bathroom, and so forth. When combined with decorative bins and baskets, your open shelving could become a storage-friendly accent piece for your apartment home.
